Lamplight venue 2005


2009 Season was - A walking tour through the historic town guided by lamplight bearing costumed docents/volunteers. Tour groups visit about thirteen vignette sites featuring historic Christmas traditions pertinent to various ethnic peoples of Columbia from 1859. This year's theme "Down but not Out" emphasizes the population of Columbia is decreasing due to the lack of easy gold pickings. However, the town is growing in social awareness by building a new brick school, making sure the town is protected against future devastating fires, and are becoming less prejudice against other ethnic groups. This was a wonderful way for you and yours to begin a joyous holiday season.

Tours last a little more than an hour and are handicap accessible.
Be prepared for cold weather and sometimes rain.
Refreshments are served at the end of the tour in the cozy warmth of the Eagle Cottage.

This event is the main annual fundraiser for Friends of Columbia State Historic Park.
Friends of Columbia State Historic Park is a non-profit organization
that provides funding for all of the educational programs that are scheduled by the park.
They also provide funding for exhibit upgrades and material goods for the park, without these funds,
Columbia State Historic Park wouldn't be as lively as it is.
